Are we going to see an end to the Bond market rally?


Recommended Posts

This is a subject that without doubt has been debated over years, but never has it reached so much attention since most world economies started their reckless QE programs and neg interest rates, we have seen extreme negative yields sending the value of bonds skyrocketing to unprecedented levels. However since the ECB statement in early september bond yields, especially the German bund briefly went into positive territory for the first time since July.  The problem seen now is will the price of goverment bonds just keep on rising and see a greater steepening of the yield curve. The irony in the us is that even though their is talk of rising interest rates, investors are still holding on to T-bonds. Is their speculation that the US will cut interest rates, or are they afraid over a global market sell of bonds.

Overall i think the biggest shock and cause in a sell-off on the bond market and huge spikes in bond yields will be cause by the ECB's hopeless monetary program having nothing more to throw at the EU economy in the hope of creating growth and not a rise in interest rates. 

But this is not the only issue. What has happened to China??? Is everything fine over their. Well Fitch does not seem to think so. Its credit bubble has been outpacing GDP growth. And now China's goverment has allowed credit default swaps be used by financial institution's to insure themselves against credit defaults, which one could assume that the level of credit risk is either go up for certain sectors in the economy or credit liquidity is being tightened. Lets hope their is enough margin to pay up if these credit default swaps demand insurance payment.  China's debt to GDP has also increased by 145% since 2008. 

This is why if we do have another major worldwide economic downturn governments will have to agree to a global right-off of debt and deep clean their balance sheets, at present the amount of debt is greater than total money supply. This is why world economies are struggling to bring up inflation. We are living in a deflationary paradigm and this effect will last for as long as debt and slow growth continues to haunt us.

    • Overnight in Asia, stock markets experienced a mixed trading session. The rebound in Chinese industrial profits provided some relief, but this was partially offset by a subdued handover from Wall Street. Australian CPI was also stronger than expected, dampening sentiment on fears that the RBA may have to raise rates again. Moving on to Europe, equity futures indicate a quiet open. In the US, the Senate voted to clear a procedural hurdle for the bipartisan bill aimed at avoiding a government shutdown. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has indicated that a stopgap funding bill will be brought to the House floor on Friday. US durable goods orders are the main event of the session.   
    • I have seen several people leaving their daily jobs to enter into cryptocurrency because they think it's a place where fast money can be made lol. Some people have done it and Excel but that doesn't mean what works for Mr A will work for Mr B. @cryptorovers is an example of a successful crypto enthusiasts who left his McDonald's job in 2016 to become a full time crypto investor but several people have also tried that and got lost.  Getting into new business or opportunity can be dilusional atimes, I could remember when I got into crypto few years back, my popular slang was WAGMI meaning we are all gonna make it together but is that actually true? Of course it isn't. Becoming a crypto Millionare requires a lot. Take for instance, Ben Amstrong popular called Bit boy crypto, aside the fact that he's an early investor in Bitcoin, he has a YouTube channel with over 1.5 Million subscribers and over 1M followers on Twitter where he shares crypto news update, market trends, technical analysis and other new innovations in the world of crypto and blockchain technology across his SNS which has earned him recognition and influence. It is true that when you create influence, money will flow in, no wonder he's now worth around $8M. Embracing cryptocurrency is not a sure way to financial stability. As a matter of fact, it could lead to severe financial loss if one do not do his own research well. To succeed in this space, one must be knowledgeable enough. It's a common parable that people wants to follow who knows the way. Know when opportunities knocks at the door, be patient, remember it took Bitboy almost a decade to hit a million dollar from his BTC holdings.  . Are there other ways you think one could explore or apply to succeed or be financially stable in the crypto space? please feel free to share.
